The APPA Product Store has released a new manual, Acquisition of New Power Supply: A Guide for Public Power Managers and Policymakers

This publication discusses important actions for public power utilities and joint action agencies to take when purchasing power from wholesale power markets. It focuses on the steps in developing a power supply request for proposals; soliciting and evaluating bids; managing the RFP; and finalizing deals. 

The 26-page guide includes a sample RFP, notice of intent to bid, and a list of trade press contacts. It was written by Kiah Harris, lead consultant (now retired) at Burns & McDonnell, with contributions from American Municipal Power, Inc. and the Columbia Light & Water Department in Missouri.
